What makes you stand out as a future collegiate athlete?

I give everything I do 100 percent. I am also a great leader.

Kennedy has continued to fill out his frame and is now around 230 lbs. He always showed a good body composition with excellent power and agility numbers going back to his freshman year of high school. As expected he has filled out his frame nicely. Kennedy is deceptively big, and even though he is only 6’2″, he shows long arms and wide shoulders that should allow him to continue to pour on weight. He shows good lumbar strength, overall nice core strength maintaining good body control while fighting off blocks. I think he does need to get quicker with his hands. Kennedy is still fairly raw with his pass-rush moves. He definitely has a solid motor and good lower body strength doing a good job of fighting through blockers driving both his legs and keeping a relentless pressure in the backfield. I do like his motor as a run-stopper especially. Kennedy is smart playing off the read options and being patient. He is a solid tackler in those isolate situations, but would like to see him drop his hips more consistently and show the same good leg drive to finish off his tackles more emphatically. Kennedy should easily get over 250 lbs. at the next level, most likely even 260.
